Most Expensive Sports Card Boxes

It would be a dream come true to be able to go back in time and buy all the old wax boxes of the 1950s-1970s. Packs could be purchased for loose change. Today, some of those boxes are worth thousands of dollars. 

While certainly not complete, here are some of the highest selling sports card boxes to hit the market. 

As prices for vintage sports cards increase, prices for any unopened wax has trended up as well in recent years. 

Typically, these boxes are sold at sports related auction houses. Some end up on eBay, generally through a third party consignor. 

If you can’t afford any of these boxes I suggest you check out our Cheapest Baseball Boxes page.
